[laughter] >> let's bringing the expert of a professor and welcome christopher p cerritos -- christopher is a rights. it is still unclear as to whether this is brought in by energy or whether this is something more worrying that is underlined the fact that we haven't had inflation. to worryer: i used
5:06 am
about inflation, but i'm not really worried about it anymore. it is lower than the target rates, i think that is what the central banks should try to get to, 2%, sooner than they are doing now, especially the european bank. generally, they don't seem concerned. -- they needtion burdening with responsibilities and bring it over to government. while robert spoke about this years ago at the london school of economics. where is the will for some form of constructed stimulus? way, we are in a worse than that. had we had done it six months ago or a year ago, i would say
5:07 am
we did need stimulus, but the central bank works hard and pushed as much as they could, it as much as they should have done, but they didn't. so now we are in a position with mostloyment with industrial countries in the world that we shouldn't push it anymore now. let me bring up a chart on u.k. inflation. let's show the rate of change. it is down below the zero level going back to 1988. this makes david blanchflower look good. it makes a lot of economists who are not inflation-istas look good. this may be the wake-up call, right?
5:08 am
when you look at growth and you look at the markets, there were some of the markets that were third checks in terms of balances, and because of all this qe the market hasn't been at this third check. so maybe when you look at the lack of inflation, it means the government needs to do something more. christopher: whether we like it or not, markets will be rising tightly. talk whenduring this suddenly government came in and they're losing policy, there will be confusion in the market. we don't know if this is a trend to yet, i doubt it is a trend. management versus pushing the economy quickly. expectations,age
5:09 am
within the economic model that you and many others use, is that model broken? do we have to go to a different equation or reaction function to jumpstart what society wants? christopher: i wouldn't say the model is broken. the model does need to be extended to bring in more emerging markets, they have become much more important than they used to be. two financial factors, which we learned at the last -- tom: we learned a lot about the financial factors in the model. do you know where the risk-free rate is right now? francine: is there a risk-free

stephanie: remember, he tried to have socialism in one country. could make a stronger case in the u.k. for a year,ise going into next i think a world in which the fed has put off having a rate rise -- if we were there next year, it would be hard for the u.k. to go at that alone. the bank of japan might be loosening more. what we saw in lima is that your former employer saw stagnation. i'm sorry, but the data doesn't show that, but they do tend towards -- we do see central bank governors or finance ministers, a lot of them are saying that it will be painful but they do want the interest rate hike to happen. stephanie: a lot of them are saying it is hanging over us,
5:38 am
and they want us to go for it. but you make a good point that not a single central market bank has managed to make a rate hike stick since 2011. , theoyal bank of australia royal bank of canada, none of managed to raise rates and not reverse themselves. that is a heavy burden. tom: stephanie flanders is with us and christopher pissarides as well. week, thisater this is 6:00 new york time. to talk about the overlays in economic and financial system. vonnie quinn is in new york. this is "bloomberg surveillance." ♪

5:51 am
andil continues to drop, you look at the budget in saudi arabia, this is a possible hotspot in the markets? you are seeing this across the world. countries are grappling with whether this is a new paradigm for energy and what the implication is. we are going to see prices more around this level versus the $100 per barrel that we did see. i think we probably wouldn't focus so much on saudi arabia. i would say this is a global situation. we are reaching be like at the end of the tunnel, are we starting to see the end of the price fall. he would always expect to see the demand response to the fall in the oil price to take a while. so you didn't see the consumption in the u.s. immediately jump that. citizen, youu.s.

are happy you are spending less on gas, but are you suddenly going to drive further? but you do, next time you buy a car, you do get back to a gas guzzling truck. auto sales have never been higher than in the last few months. globally, if you apply that idea, there will be a response that we have seen by buyers. in saudi arabia, you think you have to ride this through. tom: professor, i was quite taken about how you place oil front and center. why is that? christopher: because of the impact that it has on emerging markets. , it produces and also because, i don't think the problem is the oversupply from the countries in the middle east. i think it is the unconventional sources of oil. -- the move shale
5:53 am
towards more environment that is sources, exceeding the prices of oil. 60, because that is the price of extracting it. , even beforeosts you do the investments, it costs even less. so $60 might be optimistic. tom: that is a stunning number. if we can't get there, how does that adjust the oil economy? is, the production has to come down with a vengeance. stephanie: we have seen that to some degree. but if you go back to the 1980's 1990's,od part of the this is not something, the

,upply side is unprecedented but as a price level, it is not something that if it starts going well below where we are start to say, this is fundamentally changing. but this is not the level. francine: in the past, we had oil sharks. too low, investment comes back so sharply, then we are not extracting stuff out of the ground. is there a concern that it then shoots back up to $100? stephanie: it is deeply typical. -- deeply cyclical. you could see over extended movement in one direction and then the other. christopher is talking about -- in thewant to show here final moments that we have, economic growth.

proxy, -- is. as a in a gradual decline. can it go further? where we are going with nominal gdp, it is not a good outcome. it hasn't been good. i think it will get better, but much more slowly. essentially, the economy growth is driven by consumption spending. tom: a moment of joy there. christopher: exactly. you need more confidence with that. eventually, you need more technology. but we are talking about the price of oil not having much impact in the united states. it does have an impact on consumption, and that is why we are seeing growth in the united states. they are spending on other

6:05 am
this quieting of gdp? david: thanks, tom, pleasure to be here. we devoted significant resources to the call. our view, together with some of the american academics, was that the eurozone would have a hard time sustaining itself unless you saw a convergence of fiscal policy, and more importantly competitiveness. we had one country that we saw was doing very well with the 2010 reforms coming in. that would create a lot of tension inside, and we could not quite see how that would get resolved. , but then skeptical what we did not see that made it worse was the massive accumulation of foreign debt. can you say it has cleared?
6:06 am
david: it has not. the problem is still there. one of our most important calls was that during the intense crisis we decided that it was going to hold together, not on economic grounds but on political grounds. it was clear to me, talking to people in berlin and elsewhere, there was the political will. tom: it is so important to hear the same from axel weber of the political will to keep the experiment together. david: from an economic point of view, purely from an economic point of view, it does not make that much sense. it is a political issue. the decision has been made, which we must respect and support. but the economics of it are very difficult.
6:07 am
francine: they are trying to make this great financial experiment work, and i guess my concern is currency. because we're talking about this euro is risk-off mode, the only one that is rising exactly at a time when the ecb keeps saying they can do more qe. this is dangerous. i am actually less concerned about that. that is a temporary phenomenon. i am much more concerned about the reforms they should have the reforms that should have been made have not been made. spain has gone through with some reforms. david: and portugal has, too, and so has greece. tension is there, and the contradiction is that when you have a central bank the bears all the burdens -- you have been way out front
6:08 am
with this need for financial restructuring. which institution leads provides -- besides chancellor merkel? david: the convention has been made -- the conviction has been made that there is a hidden sort of way of pushing it out. that would be expensive. probably as much as 5000 euros, but it will be done. the decision has been made to hold it together, and that they will do. but i would think you would take in terms of decades to get the political conversion in order to be able to make proper decisions on fiscal policy and things like that. it would be very expensive to get there. tom: what do you see in terms of the political party?
6:09 am
francine: we're talking about the probable timeline. the markets are going one way, qe is going one way. matteo renzi has done more reforms in the last 18 months then we have had in the last 20 years. reforms, especially if they are structural, take a long time. and we need to get used to it and push through but without expecting too much. david: you have to be very careful when you talk about reforms. the roof government on the ground. if you take a taxi in rome, you see the same restrictions as to who can get an medallion and a price charge -- reforms are easy to talk about, but it is very hard to get down in actual regulations that work. tom: i came over -- it was great. i came over on economy out on the wing. when you look at the currency
6:10 am
market. mohamed el-erian suggests that we would have to have some sort of separate currency of some form for greece. do you agree that they have to have a currency regime that allows them to move on? david: i strongly disagree. i believe the european elite, the european governments have implicitly made the decision to support greece to write down their debt, and that overtime they will come up with further transfer payments to make it work. tom: david folkerts-landau is this hour. coming up, from morgan stanley, hans redeker will joins us -- will join us. somebody people for looking for euro parity. it has not happened. francine lacqua and tom keene. we are in london. vonnie quinn is in new york. mrs. bloomberg surveillance. good morning. ♪
